    Really, this couldn't have come at a better time for you. Wasn't a LI guy just walking in his backyard when suddenly the ground opened up and swallowed him whole, dropped 20 feet, into the faulty septic tank and buried him there? I'd subscribe to this "shit" if I were you.

    What was the title on the email: "GOT SHIT ??" ( and I hate to see the promotional photo of the people with "mustaches" that goes along with the promo )

    and now, for something completely different...

    You know what's REALLY funny - sort of? The day after my last post, I received a spam email from someone trying to sell me a septic tank. Now, I get a shitload of spam each week on all sorts of stuff... university degrees, credit cards, get rich quick, get out of debt, casinos, hardcore, hi this is cindy remember me from high school.... etc. But, I never got spam about septic tanks before. And rightly so - how many people are in the market for a septic tank ?! So I can only conclude that either it was a pure coincidence, or they have some emailer bot trolling the internet looking for the string "septic tank" and somehow it got in here too. Weird!

    Ee's not pining for the FJOOORDS...

    This parrot has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker..this is an EX parrot...

    Ryan: not really..... I used to get up every morning half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of dried poison and when we were done, my dad would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah. You tell the kids today that, they won't believe you......

    I'm convinced you're actually threatening me, and I'm highly offended.



    Pardon me, while I go to my backyard and cry. :)

    Please don't give rnb a hard time... He lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. He used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day, week in-week out. When he got home, his Dad would thrash him to sleep with his belt!

    Why does ANYONE sound surpised that wsb is the voice of reason, yet again ?

    Problem is too much of the "in your face", "don't let anybody 'dis' you", street type mentality that we're all too into nowadays. Christ, point out a mistake to an underling in your office and he/she is reporting you to your supervisor.

    Too many people can't take responsibility for their own actions. They can't take constructive criticism. So why be surprised if they can't engage in a lively and spirited debate about issues (granted, rather PERSONAL issues, but issues nonetheless) without taking things so personal and getting emotionally involved and carried away.
